Known as the birthplace of rock ‘n roll and blues, Memphis is home to Graceland, served as a recording base for artists like Johnny Cash and Jerry Lee Lewis; plus, its famous Beale Street was the location of the first blues notes. From gritty, glittering Beale Street to makeshift recording studios and humble churches that are temples to sound, Memphis has been creating hit-makers for 200 years.
Memphis, located in the southwestern corner of Tennessee, sits atop a bluff just across the river from Arkansas and a few miles away from the Mississippi state line. Like most places in the Mississippi Delta, it is brimming with traditional Southern charm and hospitality. Walk into any Memphis attraction and you will be greeted as though you were family. Key locations during the 1960’s Civil Rights Movement help make Memphis a sacred pilgrimage for Martin Luther King admirers.
